AEPD brand of 2-amino-2-ethyl-1,3-propanediol is manufactured by Advancion. This aminodiol has a wide variety of end uses including dispersions, emulsification, formaldehyde scavenging, and synthesis.
AEPD™ 85 is a multifunctional amino alcohol for metalworking fluids comprised of 85% aminoethyl propanediol in a 15% aqueous solution. AEPD 85 has an intermediate base strength (pKa 8.8) and provides a good balance of pH development and reserve alkalinity properties. AEPD 85 has been shown to provide enhanced microbial control in fluids formulated with triazine-based biocides. It also offers a favorable environmental profile, improved foaming performance and reduced cobalt leaching when compared with alternative chemistries.
TEGOPREN® 5801 is a polyether siloxane that reduces fibre/fibre and fibre/metal friction. Other benefits of this products is that it decreases foam knock down times, increase foam hold down times and release entrained air from surfaces.
Tagat® TO V is a liquid, non-ionic POE 25 glycerol trioleate emulsifier. Tagat TO V is used as an emulsifier in a wide range of industrial applications including metalworking fluids (MWF), concrete release agents, agrochemicals and textile auxiliaries. In the case of MWF applications, Tagat TO V is primarily used for the formulation of environmentally friendly fluids based on mineral oils and synthetic ester oils, as well as ester oil/mineral blends. The excellent emulsifying properties allows a reduction of the total emulsifier content which is necessary for the fluid emulsification.
